Supportive business ecosystem: Institutions and Ecosystems for Business Support
ITC’s work with BSOs and the supporting ecosystem strengthens the local partners that provide knowledge, networks, credibility and resources for reach, scale, and long-lasting systemic change. As ITC becomes more ambitious, so does our work with these critical partners. This is recognized in the strategic core service area 2, which this project is designed to support. Over the next 4 years, ITC will continue to serve a broad range of BSOs including those active in ITC’s development markers of and priority themes of youth entrepreneurship, green trade, digitalisation and gender, with managerial and operational solutions, but also invest more in ecosystem level interventions, and make more use of digital channels for efficiency, scale and value.
This document sets out this 4-year perspective and 4 strategic objectives for supportive business ecosystems. More specifically, in alignment with these long-term objectives, outputs and activities for 2022 describe the one year contribution of W1 funding to this strategic core service area.
